Question: Rail route south through the San Joaquin Valley and Fresno County to Los Angeles

From: "Heather Craig" heatherhyarmory@frii.com

I am a History graduate student at Colorado State University and I am doing research on Fresno County, California. I have come across several soft sources that say the Central Pacific was the first railroad into this county in 1872. Could you confirm this for me? Some cities in this county are: Fresno, Clovis, Reedley, San Joaquin. Thanks for your assistance.
